Arguably the pinnacle of the streaming range from Cabasse is the fantastic Stream Amp, a brilliant and adept amplifier/streamer that will change the parameters of compact streaming audio systems. Building on Cabasse's audiophile foundations the Stream Amp will mean that better streaming quality and high resolution performance will now be within reach of anyone.
Once connected to your home network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, the Cabasse Stream Amp allows you to stream all your locally stored digital music files, thousands of internet radio stations as well as Deezer, Napster & Spotify Connect streaming (alongside Tidal & Qobuz hi-res streaming services). The Stream Amp is also conveniently fitted with a dedicated optical SPDIF input (which can be connected to a flat screen TV or a CD player), two analogue inputs and one USB inputs. The latter USB connection enables access to music files on memory sticks or HDDs, and instant Bluetooth Aptx connection is possible with NFC enabled smartphones and tablets.
Download the free Cabasse app on your tablet and smartphone (Android or Apple) and you can enjoy your music seamlessly, and in exceptional quality as the best audio dynamics are guaranteed with the exacting Stream Amp from Cabasse. As you would expect it enables you to access a range of compatible audio formats up to 24 bits / 96 kHz (WAV,FLAC, AIFF, AAC, MP3, PCM). This dynamism enables the Stream Amp to give you the enjoyment and the freedom to stream your digital audio files stored on your network (computers, hard drives and mobile devices), plus enables you to enjoy thousands of stations and songs with it's vTuner, Deezer, Napster & Spotify Connect support (with Tidal & Qobuz high res audio services also supported). You can use the Stream AMP as a stand alone system - or it can be grouped together with other products from the Cabasse Stream range for multi-room applications and playbac
The Stream Amp utilises a very good quality and highly musical amplifier, that delivers deceptively subtle and detailed audio performance with its 2 x 50w amplifier. This is best seen and heard when paired with the outstanding and beautifully balanced Surf loudspeakers. Delivering deep rich room filling performance and perfect for usage with the acclaimed audiophile Stream AMP, the Surf's truly belong at the crest of the Cabasse wave!
Surf is designed for a full and dynamic performance in rooms up to 25 m² (270sq ft), with a soundstage that is incredibly stable and filled with realism. When partnered with the adaptive capabilities of the Cabasse Stream AMP, this bookshelf speaker can reproduce low frequencies with an extension and purity that is generally only the privilege of larger column speakers, even placed against walls or in corners.
The Surf driver’s diaphragm was created by Cabasse for the latest versions of the 3-way co-axial TC23 which is fitted on the flagship La Sphere and L’Ocean. This diaphragm is outstanding: extreme thermal and mechanical resistance; remarkable damping capacity and stability of performance over time. In association with the powerful magnet and the clever rear ported design, the DOM 37 is able to reproduce the high-mid bandwidth with a linearity rarely reached by traditional two-way systems.
The Surf's design was specifically designed to have flexible and fast power handling, meaning that whatever the source material, the Surf's will happily engage any medium truthfully and they will accentuate musicality without colouration with quick footed finesse and ease. Surf has also been tailored by the Cabasse HDSE principle (Homogeneous Distribution of the Sonic Energy), so that in the anechoic chamber they excel on axis and in 360°. This performance and design means direct and reflected sounds are homogeneous, and as such in the real world the performance is exceptional - enabling the sound stage to be both wide and stable.
The Surf's are perfect for a host of high quality stereo applications aside from use with the Stream AMP, and as such could also be used very effectively for multi-channel applications too - whether they be used as surrounds or better still as the perfect executor of five or seven channels of audio alone in a home cinema set up.
These deceptively dynamic and hugely musical little speakers are available as a pair and finished beautifully in either gloss black or gloss white, and come with neat metal grills for the perfect fit and finish.
Compact streaming audio just got seriously serious!
